Forum: GratefulDead Subject: I'm confused.

I used to come to this site to listen to streaming of great shows, with either soundboard quality, Matrix, or super-excellent Aud. Now, i can't seem to find a show of any year with quality worth even listening to on a clock radio!!
Forgive me for not keeping up, but has the GD stopped streaming (or DL's) of ANY show that is even remotely high quality in sound? I understand that they are protecting their resources with shows that have been 'released', but even Matrix? Doesn't seem very dead-like. I know this has probably been gone over a billion times, but where can I actually find the 'good' sounding shows anymore? And why, exactly, is distribution of shows via the internet any different than how it was with tapes back inna day?
Color me dissapointed.

I'm often confused. What color is disappointed? Grey? Pastels?

Sweet honey baby, I'll be green if you're red, like really rare tube steak. Will you go to the parade with me Saturday? I know a really great bar we could go to after.

God, what a great show. I admit, I was listening to '81 but had to switch to this, and there's no comparison.

Is this a joke? I mostly listen to the early eras, and the majority of shows I listen to have at least 1 very good copy in circulation. I'm not sure what kind of standard you have when it comes to audio quality. Could you provide links to some of these terrible recordings? What years do you like best?

Maybe it's my (new) Ipad and the Safari OS? Take 1978, just as an example. I couldn't find any shows to stream that weren't 'released' (and therefore 'locked', or basically unlistenable (to me). Could this be causing me grief? I admit, i didn't have as many issues with my old laptop. Also, didn't we used to be able to stream without song breaks? I thought so. Ideas?

Interesting info. I use a PC w/ windows media player, I have cheap crappy speakers and the sound is pretty darn good. does Ipad / Safari let you click on the VBR M3U link to stream through local player or are you forced to use the embedded player on the right?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no on streaming, more often no. . Forces you to use embedded player, I think. I cannot DL anything. period.

This one sounds pretty nice to my ear.

Now the song breaks travesty is another issue. Why in the world is there an intrusive cut between China and Rider, between Scarlet and Fire. And then folks post bitchy 1 star ratings if those obnoxious breaks are missing. I use samplitude to remove those breaks after I download, but its a lot of work. I can set it up with track marks but not the gap that causes me to twinge in pain everytime I hear one. Is this just part of the OCD need to have each song individually catagorized and organized and thusly compartmentalized? It is certainly not for listening pleasure as it breaks up the flow of a second set so brutally.

That has to be near the top for audio quality. Amazing.

Some long takes on songs as well: 11' Candyman, 16' LIG, 16' NFA (rounding up).
